Can state laws regulate something if it is also regulated by the federal law?

Yes, they can as long as the federal law is not contradicted or if it is intended to preempt all state legislation in that area. For example, the federal government establishes a minimum wage, but states are free to establish higher ones if they wish. A higher minimum wage does not conflict with the federal law, because the purpose of the federal law is to help workers and a state minimum wage helps workers even more. Thus, it does not conflict with the intent of the federal law.
